Boing Boing picnic in San Francisco, July 10th


We're having our first ever Boing Boing meet-up in San Francisco this summer! We hope you'll come hang out with us at Golden Gate Park on July 10 from 11am to 3pm! Bring food, drink, and wonderful things for show-and-tell. We'll have new BB tshirts and stickers to give away.

You can RSVP on our Facebook event page (but you're also welcome to just show up); feel free to toss around ideas on the wall about stuff we can do during our time together. Here's a link to the exact location on Google Maps. Hope to see you there!


  1. Wow, Boing Boing for the win. You managed to pick one of the four days this year I’m leaving my crappy apartment here in Chapel Hill to go visit my friend’s crappy apartment in downtown San Francisco. See you there!

  2. ‘xactly… are there picnic ‘mirrors’? Specially in case this one goes down… or doesn’t go down.. or goes down and needs others to go down. Or goes down and needs others to get down (wit yer bad selves).

    1. Please do not encourage the cosplayers nor the furries.


      MGMT (The band, not the management.)

  3. What!?! San Francisco gets a picnic and all I get here in Baltimore is one lousy Cory Doctrow? This is my “living on the east coast” sadface =(

    1. Boing Boing is actually many places, including Toronto.

      Pesco: SF
      Xeni: LA
      Mark: LA
      Cory: London
      Rob: Pittsbugh
      Battelle: Marin
      Dean: Pittsburgh (SF for the summer)
      Lisa: SF
      Maggie: Minneapolis
      Brandon: Austin
      Ken: Toronto

      Antinous, Arkizzle, and Avram? The tubes.

  4. Oh yes – there needs to be worldwide satellite parties – can’t let all the SF-folks have all the fun!

    Okay – let’s start with my neck of the woods. :-)

    Who’s up for a 10th July picnic in London?

    Pass it on!

  5. I’ll check with my wife to see how high her nerd tolerance is likely to be that day.

  6. Pffft! SF? Who needs to be in SF? I can be BB all year round here in Gothenburg, Sweden – so go suck a walrus at fishermans warf for all I care! Weeee… lookatmego… oaaahh! Its *amazing* here – hope you guys are doing fine in that hempinfested, dank pit in which you decided to hold a meet-up.

  7. Oh yeah. Just so nobody flips out when Mark isn’t there jamming on his cigar box guitar and Cory doesn’t fly by hanging from a balloon, you should know that unfortunately neither of them can make it.

  8. For as much as Boing Boing trashes Facebook, it’s a little ironic that you’re using the service to RSVP and wall post suggestions.

    1. You don’t have to do anything. The Facebook event is just so we can get a general headcount. You do not need to RSVP on Facebook to show up.

  9. Shoot. I’m going to be out there a week too late.

    Anybody want to mirror one in St. Louis on the 10th?

  10. On the one day that my mom is coming to visit! Maybe she will want to hang with the other happy mutants (but probably not). Anyway, a fantastic idea… and maybe if this one goes well another will be scheduled!

  11. I’m in Los Angeles and I want to meet Mark and Xeni. I’d give them a hot dog print, cool cats. (Although San Francisco would be very nice to meet up for a picnic, too.)

  12. If you guys decide it’s not hot and humid enough for you in San Fran, we’d love to have you down here in Atlanta.

    As was said earlier, I wanna see photos.

  13. When is the BoingBoing Osaka picnic? Can I join the staff just so I can start it? I don’t even have to be a contributor or an editor… you know… just “Osaka Picnic Guy” or something…

  14. And afterwards the geek fest continues:
